Steve Parsons, who helps run the St. Paul's United Methodist Church food pantry and is involved in the homeless outreach program working to get the homeless in Manteca off the streets, believes the general community aversion to a homeless shelter is misplaced.
The Manteca Futbol Club took it upon themselves to pay the City of Manteca to have an off-duty Manteca Police officer work the streets in and around Woodward Park during their soccer tournament this past weekend.
Bonsai trees galore. A gigantic sundial on the ground, all handmade, with the traventine-marble gnomon rising to an impressive five feet. A full bocce ball court. Tree roses along pathways winding around not just one but two 1860s Victorian houses. A Biblical garden and a labyrinth surrounded by lush landscaping at St. Paul's United Methodist Church.
